There is a great academic opportunity for college students interested in pursuing a career in public policy and international affairs. The Public Policy & International Affairs Fellowship Program (PPIA) is now accepting applications for the 2014 Junior Summer Institutes (JSI). Each year, PPIA brings together high-potential undergraduate students from universities across the country to participate in an intensive seven-week Junior Summer Institute (JSI) before their senior year.
The program focuses on preparing students for graduate programs in public and international affairs and careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The JSI curriculum will cover courses and topics that will strengthen the students’ quantitative, analytic and communication skills. These skills are vital for admission into the top graduate programs in public and international affairs. If you are interested, an application must be submitted through the PPIA website at: www.ppiaprogram.org. The application deadline for the 2014 Junior Summer Institutes is November 1, 2013.
PPIA’s mission is to promote the inclusion and full participation of underrepresented groups in public service and to advance their leadership roles throughout our civic institutions serving domestic and international affairs.
